Abstract: We present dust mass measurements of 12 Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) planetary nebulae (PNe) based on Spitzer data and CLOUDY modelings. We show the relations between the dust mass and dust-to-gas mass ratio and metallicity in our sample. Our estimated mass-loss rate is approximately comparable to theoretical model predictions for 1–2 M stars with a typical LMC metallicity.
